I make no bones about my love of the color green in decorating. I will fully own up to the fact that I use it often and maybe too much for some people. I don’t care though. I’m not a quitter. Meg from Green with Decor emailed me a couple months back and asked if I wanted…
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again.
Sometimes the best room makeovers are the ones that are unplanned.
Totally random, flying by the seat of your pants, out of the blue unplanned.
It happened in my living room.
It started with a black and white gallery wall, which led to a new rug, which led to new curtains.
And suddenly, I finally had a living room I loved.
And now its happened with the bathroom.
But the best part is that this random, little out of the blue makeover cost me just $50.
All that was needed was a little paint, a shower curtain, and some rearranging.
So. As my former students would say, “What had happened was….”
It was love at first spray when I made the Kate Spade Inspired Lamp Makeover.
I had met my decorating color soulmate and there was no turning back.
Green and I went together as well as me and cheap beer.
Well, almost. Let’s face it – cheap beer will always have my heart. Oh, and Grunt Labor too.
I think one of the main reasons I love green so much is because it looks great with my second in line favorite colors.

I’ve begun a new love affair.
Grunt Labor doesn’t mind a bit.
Its more beautiful than I ever dreamed.
Its with green.
And black and white stripes.
Really, its just with the green, black and white combination in general.
I never considered the combination until my Enchanting green paint swatch accidentally fell on top of some black and white fabric and I was like…
Oh My Gosh.
Of course, I totally said that in the style of Usher’s song.
At that point, I did a walk-through of my house to determine which piece of furniture would be my next victim.
The lucky guy was this french country chair which ended up with a modern makeover.
